Kathryn Varley Horsham Yoga

 About Kathryn Varley 
Horsham Yoga

My interest in bio-mechanics, how the body moves and breathes, along with exploration of possibilities within the muscular skeletal system, to find a more natural ease and range of motion, is one of the driving forces that continue to stimulate my interest in yoga today.  

 

Enquiring into potential for relief from mental, emotional as well as physical pain have been at the forefront of my own practice.  

 

This offers fertile ground for a personal in-depth enquiry for those with a very busy life and a curious mind.  Here,  Somatic Movement, 

offers  a view into how our behaviour is inextricably linked not just to the mind but also how it is deeply reflected in the body, affecting our mood, breath and emotions, all at same time.

Tina

 I always feel uplifted and ready to face anything after attending class. Kathryn is so caring too - adapting poses/moves to suit the individual, making sure you are comfortable and able to get the most out of yoga, physically and mentally. Her easy, friendly personality just adds to a very rewarding experience.

Margaret

I gained confidence to try other forms of  yoga .
Kathryn was my very first yoga teacher and I have yet to find a better one.
Classes are suitable for beginners and improvers - you will find a warm welcome and learn so much about yourself and yoga.

Jane

Kathryn is very experienced and yet continues to explore new ways of accessibility.
As students we join her to learn how better to navigate this world to observe and partake.
I am happier, healthier and more self-reliant.
I am so glad our paths crossed.
